Billabong Pro J-Bay is ON in Clean Conditions

July 18, 2011

The Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay, Event No. 4 of 11 on the 2011 ASP World Title season, will recommence this morning with Round 2 starting at 9:45am in clean three-to-four foot (1 metre) waves.

“We woke up this morning to see some unexpected lines coming through with a light offshore wind, making the conditions very inviting,” Rich Porta, ASP International Head Judge, said. “We aim to run the first six heats of Round 2, with the remainder on standby. We’ll be monitoring conditions throughout the morning. Good luck to all our competitors.”

Kelly Slater (USA), 39, reigning 10-time ASP World Champion, has failed to turn up for both his Round 1 and Round 2 heats, forfeiting his spot in the Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay (under the new ASP rule). Slater will be replaced by Travis Logie (ZAF), 32, in Heat 1 of Round 2 against wildcard Shaun Payne (ZAF), 26.
